Bridges has a fine time playing with himself, so to speak. Add Garrett Hedlund as Flynn's son Sam, the rebel who zaps himself into the...

Bridges is enjoyable as he gives the older Flynn a Zen hero quality, and even breaks through the effects to make his younger-Clu-self oddly...

Tron: Legacy gives us a dud stud named Garrett Hedlund as Sam Flynn, the hero of this petrified sequel to 1982's "Tron." None of what he...

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
Legacy is a two-hour light show with a lot of flash, a little style, and not one byte of narrative originality.

This sequel is also goofy, also eye-popping - see it in Imax 3-D if you really want to fry your optic nerve - and also weakly scripted. And...

For those in the audience, it's best to just sit back, drink in its virtual dazzle and not ask questions. The story is beside the point in...

It all ends up being a half-hour too much of a just okay thing.

An ungodly mess that's great fun to look at for about 15 minutes and exhausting the rest of the time.

It's dispiriting to see how little attention the filmmakers have paid to the dramatic - read human - possibilities of the original, or how...

Mishmash of a bunch of Sci-Fi movies

I got to see a special viewing a few days before the release and I thought TRON Legacy was a mishmash of a bunch of Sci-Fi movies. There's a little bit of Batman Begins and a little bit of The...

Big hype, mixed delivery

By chalfontsis
If you think this is the 2nd coming of Avatar as far as effects go, it is not. In fact, in less you are a die-hard 3D geek, I'd recommend saving the money all-together. The effects are decent, but...

Great movie

By movie_madness777
I saw the original in the movie back in 1982. This movie you are either going to like it or NOT like it. If you are going in expecting to see a "remake" or an updated version of the original, you will...

Saw 15 minute 3-D Preview at DISNEY!

We take for granted now, what the original didn't provide. This preview left us wanting More TRON: Legacy. I truly hope and believe that Disney does well with this. They've been putting much stock in...

TRON ties 80s pop culture to 90s FX

By ldbaldwin
I enjoyed TRON. I have never seen the original and I did not feel like I was missing anything or any part of the back story. To me, that was the good AND bad thing about TRON....its missing back...

A Beautiful, Entertaining Work of Art

While it may not be a masterpiece, it was indeed one of the most entertaining movies of the entire year. While the script maybe lacking, the action, the visuals all more than make up for that. This...

Waste of Money and Time

The "Real3D" aspect of this show, was Real Lousy. Half the time I took my glasses off, and there was not much difference. All the women were (of course) dressed real provocitive, and everyone seemed...

It was a wow!

I had never seen a 3-D movie before and it was a great experience. I want to see more. It was a little hard to follow the story of Tron:Legacy, but I loved the special effects. I would never want...
